Georgia Workers Compensation Attorney
If you have been injured on the job, you will quickly encounter numerous challenges. It is possible that you may be unable to return to work, or if you are able to return, you may only return on a part-time basis depending on the examining doctor’s diagnosis. Worst case scenario could be that you are permanently injured thereby preventing you from ever returning to work, and subject to a lifetime of expensive treatment. In each of these scenarios, you often will have to deal with employers who are not treating you fairly. You must follow the list of employee actions as posted in the workplace when submitting a claim for payment of work-comp benefits:
- notify employer of injury
- seek immediate medical care
- document accident details
- accurately explain accident
- list all witnesses
- notify your insurance carrier
